So you can follow accounts even after you closed down your own.
It works by replacing "twitter.com" in an URL with "nitter.eu", "nitter.net" or one of the other instances:
So, if you'd like to follow, say, @dog_feelings on there, you can use e.g.:
https://nitter.eu/dog_feelings/rss to do so in any RSS reader.
@th Yes!! I want to move to the Netherlands someday, the people-first city design is like a dream, I love it
I have the opportunity to develop a digital lit curriculum for people being released from incarceration, some of whom have done over 20 years in prison.
This has the potential to have huge positive impacts on their lives; they need to know how to attach a resumé to an email, and how to avoid scammers, among many many other basic skills we all take for granted.
Please if you have any input I would appreciate it because I am not omnipotent and can't think of everything.
Please boost this!
This is an old idea that surfaces every once in a while. I wrote the pitch before I knew about SCP, but the premise can be distilled as Victorian/Turn of the Century SCP.
I used to describe it as "A less fatalistic Warehouse 13 (well, warehouse 12, it's the victorian era.)" and both of those things give an impression of the idea, but neither of them really Explains the #dreadfulDocs so let me go grab an old ideas file and copy and paste.
*aggressively ignoring drama continues, but louder*
so I got some frozen imported potstickers the other day, and realized last night that holy shit, the container on the boat had to be that cold the whole way, and then the truck that did the land leg *also* was frozen temperature, and I *still* paid like $6 for these? dude what the hell. oil is too cheap.
and wait there was another land leg too. ALSO with frozen temperature moving storage. yikes.
@t54r4n1 Sail cargo is a thing that's gotten going again in the last 5-10 years. The Ceiba is a wooden schooner that people are building in Costa Rica for sail cargo and to help get the locals trained up in amazing skills. Once it's built it'll help with building the local economy with small scale trade.
Hey fediverse -- what are the best sources to read on #rojava and the role of worker and other cooperatives in the strategy and practice?
Praise for The Dawn of Everything by Graeber and Wengrow
Generally, I don't participate into editorial hypes. Not because I'm a snob, but just because I'm distracted: I've my own infinite list of books to read and I focus on that. I know that I'll reach the hyped book when I'm ready for it. This time I made an exception and I started reading The Dawn of Everything by Graeber (RIP) and Wengrow. Oh boy, what a monumental book. Each page a Rubik cube-like twist of historical certainties, every section a dramatic reconsideration of the way we think of society and civilization. Intellectual rigor, crystalline prose, engaging storytelling. A non-fiction book, of the most lucid kind, the reads like a novel. I'm hooked.
